This sound history of ""the proper study of mankind"" valuably extends the definition of ""anthropology"" all the way back to the speculations of the Greeks - but it should have been sub-subtitled ""A History of Anthropological Thought for Anthropologists. What could have been an exciting and colorful book if written to edify the intelligent layman was undertaken rather to broaden the minds of professionals; so it's interesting rather than exciting, a detailed and humanizing grad-school textbook. Malefijt describes the impact of the great exploratory voyages on the idea of man and ably shows the pendulum-swings of Western thought across the centuries, towards and away from the idea of social ""evolution"" and ilization, away from and back to the idea that certain basic human qualities are inborn (recently revived in new form by Chomsky and Levi-Strauss).
